Fantastic Wallpaper Ideas

If there was one thing I would love to see more of, in Greece, is wallpaper. And I’m not talking about any boring, granny looking wallpaper. Wallpapers nowadays are simply fascinating. Every chance I get to gaze at wallpaper lookbooks is a treasured moment, because my mind begins an imaginary journey of endless possibilities, starting with these modern wallpaper designs!

You see wallpapers are a bit like area rugs. They engage. BIG time! They complement. They create a story. They liven any space from a powder room, entryway to a dining room. So join me today for some decor inspiration. Check out these fantastic, modern wallpaper designs that will get you in a decorating mood! 😉

Wallpapers add energy in a rather unconventional way through motifs. And that’s what makes them really stand out. Obviously, they usually add pattern. (I say usually, because murals are more about a theme rather than pattern). They also highlight easily a specific feature like an alcove, or frame furniture like a chest. But most times, they act as an interesting backdrop, ideal for creating contrasts or accents on walls or ceilings.

Floral motifs are no longer boring. They are vibrant and full of punch. Animals are no longer reserved for children’s bedrooms. Geometrical motifs and tropical themes are super trendy – fresh and exciting. Each motif has different vibe. All you have to do is find the one that resonates to you and your style. Some are bold and sophisticated, while others have a whimsical feel to them. Personally, I wish I had a huge kitchen with a casual dining space where I would have a tropical theme wallpaper, just throw things off a little and celebrate living (if you catch my drift)! 😉 And why not catch some inspiration on the urban tropical decorating theme.

These modern wallpaper designs/motifs are awesome, or what?! They instantly update and upgrade any living room. So which theme would you consider? I’m in between the green foliage and the blue houses’ blueprint. (Can’t hide my engineering discipline, now can I)? LOL!

So many brands now, have gorgeous paper wallcoverings, textile, or vinyl ones with or without a non-woven backing. Moreover, there are some 3D wall coverings that take everything a whole new level but, most of us can suffice with the 2D printed kind.

The good news are that the choices are endless, while the prices vary considerably. So, all you have to do is shop around for whatever suits you best. The only real issue you may encounter, is choosing which wall(s) to install first! 😉

Stay inspired, XO
